"Aurora borealis over Kjerk Fjord" by Robert Harvey

Stumbling Around in the Dark
Digital photography enables us to capture the beauty of the night sky in unprecedented detail. In this evening of landscape astrophotography, I show how to use an ordinary digital single lens reflex camera to make stunning images of stars, planets, earth’s moon and the Milky Way, as well as more elusive astronomical phenomena such as meteors and eclipses. In the second half, I recount travels in the arctic in search of the aurora borealis and on four continents to photograph total solar eclipses.
